Matchmaker Matchmaker, Make Me a Match

During a lazy Saturday, I happened to come across the NBC show "The Match Off" which is about two match makers trying to set one person up. And I think, Oh, I haven't really thought about a match maker. Well, I did a few years ago but it was expensive. After watching the show I realized this is probably a good way to met a decent person with long term possibilities. So I just checked out a few matchmakers in the NYC area. Wow, they shattered my dreams. One focuses setting up men with women, another one was between 5,000 - 10,000 dollars. HAHA. Yeah, I can't afford groceries. Others don't have any sort of prices listed (probably for a good reason) but I can't fill out questionnaires and/or go there and be like, oh are you crazy? Maybe the rich guy they set me up with that I will eventually marry would be willing to pay my fee just for finding me :)

Sometimes I wonder what I am doing wrong, that I get zero attention. I can go out with a girlfriend to lunch/dinner, and she is single & pretty, and no one talks to us. I go grocery shopping, to the park, the library, ride the train - no one talks to me. I know I can give off a don't talk to me signal - but I don't mean to most of the time...but when people cat cal at you a lot, you just learn to ignore people.

Other people jump from one person to another so quickly, but I can't find one decent one. Is it normal that after 2 years, I have not had a rebound relationship? No, I don't think so. Sure, I am a little picky, but that shouldn't mean I get nothing. And, I don't think that me being a broke, single gal trying to be independent should mean I remain alone because I can't afford to date or pay for help.

Maybe I can set up a fund and ask for donations. If anyone deserves to find love, I do think it is me.

If I knew more people, I could specialize in affordable matchmaking for young adults.

  1. I think you are like me, and give off the "don't talk to me" vibe waaaaay more than you realise. But you should remember, YOU can chat someone up too! Its scary, but honestly, its just as scary for the guys too! (that's how I met fletcher, remember?)
